This is one of those deals where if they win a championship, a lot of people will be happy about this deal. If they don't it will be looked at as a mistake. A lot of giants fans ( including myself) were not happy with how Zito did with the Giants after his huge deal. However, after his performance in the 2012 playoffs there were very few people who were not happy with the deal. They paid him that money to help win championships and without him we wouldn't have won that year.
